Hawks trim roster, waive Eddie, Pittman



The Atlanta Hawks reduced their roster to 15 players on Tuesday by waiving forward Jarell Eddie and center Dexter Pittman.

Eddie and Pittman were not used Monday night in the Hawks’ 117-14 overtime win over the Charlotte Hornets in a preseason game.

The Hawks were left without roster spots for Eddie and Pittman after signing free-agents Thabo Sefolosha and Kent Bazemore and drafting center Adreian Payne during the offseason.

Eddie, a rookie from Virginia Tech, averaged 2.8 points in three preseason games. Pittman is a four-year NBA veteran who has spent time with the Miami Heat, Memphis Grizzlies and the Hawks.
